Area music lovers are invited to a wind ensemble concert at 8:30 p.m. Thursday featuring Dr. Jessie Thoman, assistant professor of music at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
The concert will be held in the ballroom on the second floor of the Boling University Center on the UT Martin campus.
Thoman will perform Richard Strauss’ Concerto No. 1, a piece Strauss wrote at age 18, which has become part of the standard French horn repertoire.
“Dr. Thoman performs every note with expression and beauty of tone that inspires our students to great musical heights,” Dr. Nola Jones, director of bands, said. “The work itself is centered around a thematic fanfare developed to showcase the instrument’s glorious qualities.”
The concert will also include music by Grantham, Shostakovich, Grainger and Nelson.
The performance is free and open to the public.
